rigid, unable to move hand or foot while
a trolley car came thundering along.

struck me, but the dread of it all lasted

The Farm Field and Fireside says: "It ha
been left to Mr. George Howard Gibson to intro
dnce anew tone into the xongs of ths party, and
to write a series of patriotic songs which are
hardlv surpassed by any In our literature for
loftiness of motive and real merit from a literary
point of view, while at the same time they are not
at all lacking In the musical quality which must
necessarily be present before any song toucne
the chord of popularity. They are remarkable
for their fervid patriotism and broad humanity.
In fact, if the People's party rises to the patriotic
level of these songs, we hav ilttla doubt of It
nltlmate success as a party. The ougs strlk
the whole octave of human sympathy. Kpark
liug humor, keen wit and biting sarcasm, as well
as the loftier patriotic themes, are touched la
turn by tit talented author."
